Description

The middle age is the age of wisdom. It is a shift — there’s no denying that. And with this shift brings the potential to create a vibrant and happy life, rich with purpose, which is true to who you are at this new stage and beyond.

 

Perhaps life events have thrown you off course, or you’ve reached this moment without having truly discovered your purpose? If so, this life-affirming workshop is for you!

 

Divorce, grief, children moving out, a stagnant career, health issues, or other external and internal circumstances can all provide the ideal environment for growth, opportunity and healing.

During this transformative retreat, you will:

 

  • Build strength, energy and stamina through daily yoga classes
  • Discover the science of yoga and mindfulness through workshops and discussion
  • Connect, in a sacred circle, with others who share the intention of being the best version of themselves
  • Gain insight into the meaning of this stage of life, and learn how to harness that meaning for your growth
  • Release what is no longer serving you, and set intentions for the future, through guided workshops and ceremonies
  • Learn invaluable tools including breathwork, meditation, yoga, and techniques for managing thoughts and emotions about aging

 

You will take home new healthy habits, actionable tools for embracing this new phase of your life, and steps to move forwards with positive direction; as well as new friends to support you along the way.

 

Open to women aged 40 and beyond with an interest in yoga and meditation.
